I-864 Affidavit of Support Spouse Form Requirements

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello!

 

I have a few questions if someone has any experience with this. I am a student and have never filed my taxes and always been my father's dependent. I have filed for my spouse to come to the U.S.. I have a joint sponsor and that part is covered. For this step of the process I have:

 

I-864 AOS Completed by me (the petitioner) 

i-864 AOS Completed by my joint sponsor

My 2019,2018,2017 and Wage and Income Requirements from IRS

My 2019,2018,2017 Non-Filing letter from IRS

Joint Sponsor's 2019,2018,2017 Tax Returns

 

Is this sufficient to submit for AOS

 

Also for the form itself, the USCIS Account Number is that number given through the receipt, correct? Is this the same number for my spouse and myself as well? Are you putting "None" in all the blank spaces since I cannot put in "N/A" since it does not let other symbols in the text boxes. I am also putting 000s where I do not have anything to add such as the Alien number. Also, as I mentioned I am a student so as my employment should I put "student" and my university? For my total income, should I put $0 even though I have received financial aid and scholarships? And lastly, is mailing information in Part 2 my spouse's mailing information overseas or my mailing information (the petitioner). 

 

If anyone has answers to any of these questions let me know! Thank you!!

First of all, where are your spouse? Are you trying to get documents ready for NVC

 

You need to read the form's INSTRUCTION!

 

USCIS Account Number is None if you don't have it, don't guess.

 

Alien Number is None if you don't have it, you should have it if you are at NVC stage.

 

Only Most Recent tax info needed, last 2 years are optional. 

 

You don't have to send your non-filling letters, but it is okay. Put 0 as current income. You are unemployed so you pick Unemployed. Student is not an occupation.

 

Part 2 is about Principal Immigrant.

So I have read the Instructions, but somethings seem very vague. For my I-130 I had talked to a lawyer and they said I could put student for employment if I'd like. I left it in and was wondering if I should leave it in for the I-864. Since it isn't employment, I will answer no. Thanks!

Shouldn't the tax return be enough evidence that their income is what it is? What else do you suggest adding?

No. That shows they had an income in 2019 it doesn't show current income. You need to submit current pay stubs. 6 months worth would be good; he could also include a letter from his employer stating he has worked there XX years, it is a full time job, his hourly wage/salary is XX.

Tax returns are required (well, at a minimum the most recent year's is), but for an employee, they only show past income.

For example, if I were to quit my job today, my current income would be $0. If i were then hired late this year for $50,000/year, my current income would then be $50,000/year.

 

Typically paystubs are the best way to document current income here, and/or a letter from the employer with the annual salary (or hourly wage + expected average hourly commitment).
